The Kris Longknife novels form an ongoing series, before reading Audacious, if you are new to the series I highly recommend reading these first:

1 - Kris Longknife: Mutineer
2 - Kris Longknife: Deserter
3 - Kris Longknife: Defiant
4 - Kris Longknife: Resolute

Navy lieutenent Kris Longknife, Princess of Wardhaven has this time been sent to the planet of New Eden to negotiate various buisness contracts for her family's software company. This is meant to be an extremely safe planet with strict gun laws. Several assassination attempts on her life and the lack of news repots of the incidents though make it abundently clear that not all is as it seems on this planet.

I very much enjoyed the storyline. New Eden is an interesting planet verging on a revolution where some of it's policies somehow got left behind from the rest of human space. There is a much deeper look into Kris's enigmatic maid revealing a lot about her past and making her feel a lot more human which I really liked. As always there is also a lot of witty banter between the cast complemented by a lot of action, the finale of the book is especially action packed as it reaches it's conclusion.

To sum up if you enjoyed the series up till this point than this book is unlikely to disappoint.

+ New Eden is an interesting planet.
+ Nice look into Abby's past.
+ Action packed finale.

If you liked the earlier Kris Longknife novels, you'll like this. It's not the best place to start, partly because there are so many references to previous books, and partly because the degree of suspense and the apparent importance of the conflict is not so good as Resolute or Defiant, for instance. Also, I think there were more typos then I've ever seen in a published book, to the extent that they really did get in the way of the content - lazy editing and proof-reading. But still worth reading, with background on Abby in particular.

Thats what you get here. I can hear Vicky's English accent, and Kris and her crew's banter is a perfect foil for the absolute horror of combat with the weapons of the future, no clean laser wounds here people, just flesh being shredded by ultra high velocity projectiles.
This is the fifth in the series and the cold war between the Longknifes and Peterwalds is ramping up something fierce.
To really enjoy this start at book 1, it does just make it as a stand alone novel.

After numerous assassination attempts, Princess Kris Longknife, a Lieutenant in the Wardhaven navy plans to do a little business and get some rest and relaxation on the planet New Eden. Almost as soon as she lands an attempt is made on her life and efforts to get assistance from her computer implant were jammed. This was thought to be impossible and the last time it happened her family's enemies were involved.

The attempt on her life makes it on the news and she learns after some digging that New Eden is not as productive and peaceful as it is supposed to be. New Eden journalists are forbidden from reporting negative stories, a large part of the population is forbidden to vote and there is much crime but nobody hears of it. She discovers Victoria is on the planet and she blames Kris for killing her brother. In the course of dealing with another assassination attempt, a large cache of weapons is found by Kris' troops. Something big is going to happen on New Eden and Kris will find herself, her marines and other allies in the middle of it.

Mike Shepherd is a fantastic storyteller who excels at writing military science fiction. His protagonist is a strong willed independent thinker who does what she thinks is best for humanity even if it means not adhering to planetary law. Human life is very precious to her and those people in her inner circle who play roles in the storyline. There is plenty of action and tension as this is a thoroughly enjoyable reading experience for science fiction fans. Also, if you missed reading Tino Georgiou's masterpiece--The Fates, go and read it.

I love authors who manage to insert humor into their art. All too often it seems as though the fight between the good and bad is stuffed to the gills with seriousness. Not so with Mike Shepherd.

Kris Longknife is a heroine who fights for what she believes in (especially in staying alive around the Peterswald family). Her strength lies in getting people to want to help her by not being afraid of being on the front-lines herself. She does not take herself all that seriously and doesn't get in a huff when people don't treat her with the respect that one might think that a princess should have.

This is a fun read. Shepherd's style of writing is refreshing, while all the time remaining faithful to his characters. It must be awfully fun to be able to catch the attention of people the way he does.

I like space military stories with a female lead, Kris is likeable and funny, and the story fast paced, at the moment. The language is poor, and unfortunately has not been adequately proofread, but reading Amazon's self-published books is inuring me to that.
